multi patchstick hack + hide unwanted menu items + fast boot
OK, so i used the regular method of opening up my appleTV
then I applied a second patchstick called patchstick.ca
This opened up a second menu item called launchmore! This allowed me to do some funky stuff.
First off I do not use iTunes at all. XBMC is my baby. So when I updated to OS 3.0.1 I was dismayed that launcher was no longer item one on the menu meaning more remote presses to launch XBMC.
Imagine my surprise when I found option in launch more to hide the menu items that require itunes installed on my PC, oh the joy.
Now launcher is my first option :)
Next thing I found cool was the ability to remove the long winded video that plays every time I reboot the box. Fastboot for the win.
I did this using the free version of the patchstick.ca and have no intent on subscribing as I think the price is harsh.
Hope a few find this useful.
**if anyone knows a shortcut to the XBMC home screen via the remote please let me know.
